P365+1 Week 21 - Prelude to Summer

The weekend was hot, then things chilled down, and we ended up the week with temperatures in the 90's. The kids are winding down school, with another round of Finals for the Girl and nothing but fun for the Boy in middle school. Summer vacation is just around the corner for the kids.....

Saturday Night Block Party - it was a perfect evening to enjoy the Tons of Fun Band. Heather even convinced me to dance and I had a blast.

Sunday - Oops, no photo. I recall relaxing at home.

Monday Evening Baseball Game. Unfortunately, another loss.
141/365+1 Sportsmanship. And yes, we lost.

Tuesday - the note I found on the kitchen counter:
142/365+1 Demon Cricket Note
My daughter complained the other night that there was a cricket in her room that wouldn't stop chirping which prevented her from falling asleep. So she's dubbed the thing "Demon Cricket". Then we discovered that it's not a cricket, but a very loud frog that has take up residence in our pond. He is so loud that even our neighbors have noticed his high pitched trills at night. Good thing I wear ear plugs to bed.

Wednesday - an evening without outside obligations, so I can enjoy some wine and watch yesterday's episode of Glee (which made me cry, of course)
143/365+1 Finally, A Night to Enjoy At Home

Thursday - Taking off from First Base, and a resounding win.
144/365+1 Taking Off

Friday - Kids acting their age? Certainly not.
145/365+1 My Kids, Acting So Grown Up #squaready #silly
I had seven yards of mulch delivered today - just in time for the holiday weekend. The best part? I can't really help put it down. [OK, I think I can handle a little bit of manual labor, so I'll help a bit] The kids are certainly big enough to help, but they had the best time goofing off after Scott told them to wash out the wheel barrel. Apparently that was a code phrase for wheel barrel races. Hey, they enjoyed themselves, didn't get hurt and even insisted I take pictures - I call that a successful evening.
